The fund, which is set to launch in April of this year and will be benchmarked against the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Bond USD Hedged Index over a rolling three to five year period, will be managed by the global multi-sector team, supported by over 100 investment professionals worldwide. The team, led by Head of Global Macro, Bob Jolly, and fixed income fund manager, Gareth Isaac, will use a diversified top-down approach and seek to generate consistent returns through the exploitation of opportunities across a range of alpha sources.
Schroder ISF Global Unconstrained Bond will be managed using a similar approach to the existing portfolios run by the Schroders global multi-sector team (Schroder ISF Global Bond, Schroder ISF Strategic Bond and Schroder GAIA Global Macro Bond). This approach aims to exploit the skill and experience of Schroders’ global resource within diversified portfolios.
